{ When You Wish Upon A Penny }

Yes, you are indeed reading yet another post about my adorable nephew. Deal with it! So my last night in Arizona I sent Little D's mommy and daddy out on a date and took the munchkin with me and the girls to dinner. Not that anyone really cares about all the details, but for the sake of journaling, we met up with the ladies in Mesa for some Costa Vida. My fave! After our delectable pork salads, we moved the fun outdoors and over to the fountain so Little D could play in the water.

I could tell the kid wanted nothing more than to dive head first into the fountain so to distract him, I opened up my purse and pulled out a handful of pennies from my wallet. As I carefully handed him each penny, he would look at me as if to say, "Auntie Aubrey, what should I wish for?" Of course each time I told him to wish that his Auntie would hurry up and find a husband so she could give him some cute cousins to play with. I think he threw 15 pennies into the fountain that night. He really loves his Auntie. We'll see if my...I mean his wishes come true!

Hahaha! Did you see the movie, "When In Rome" yet?
Sounds familiar with the pennies in the fountain! So cute! Little D loves Auntie A!

Maybe if you'd give a few more guys a chance your wish...I mean your Nephew's wish...would come true. Just saying...there are guys out there...just maybe have to be a little more open to us ;-)
